                            Wanted - a new Editor
                                for Small Printer                B R I T I S H  ‡  P R I N T I N G  ‡  S O C I E T Y

          As you know, the magazine is a monthly publication. The main task of the Editor
            is to gather the material together, and check it for obvious errors like typos,
           spelling mistakes, grammatical inconsistencies (positioning of apostrophes is a
                                   particular bugbear).
             He or she then simply has to pass it on to the Design Editor, so no special
                     computer skills beyond word processing are involved.
             The position is for a period of three years. This gives time for the person to
           establish their own style, bearing in mind it is for a society who enjoy the art of
                                printing and its allied crafts.
          Any enquiry for further information regarding what is involved should be directed
                           towards the current Editor, Chris Green.
          Your application should be sent to the BPS Secretary, Peter Salisbury, at 4 Doran
              Drive, Redhill, Surrey, RH1 6AX, or emailed to
